My challenge – keeping in mind that one of the first signs someone has an alcohol addiction is denial such an addiction exists- if you have no problem with alcohol, and yet claim to have compassion for those who do, simply stop drinking alcohol. You need prove nothing to me. Perhaps your response to my challenge will serve to prove something to you.

I’m done being embarrassed about my problems. I often make errors of judgement that take me places I don’t want to be, and I’m working on that. But I don’t care what people think as much as I once did. Everyone’s got the stuff, you know? If it’s a toss up between keeping up appearances, pretending I don’t need God’s grace because I’m so worked out, and looking like a loser because I need his grace like I need oxygen, it’s the latter I choose. With the grace comes Him. With me, I just get…me.
I’ve been told people are seeking God, but I don’t think they are any more. People are getting along just fine without him. And I think it’s our fault. If Christians stopped telling people that God can fulfill every need, and started telling them the problem is actually need, and not just their own need at that, I think more people would be interested in finding out what God’s relevance to them may actually be.
If you’re a Christian, as I am, you’ve probably been fed the party line that people who commit suicide go to hell, do not pass go, do not collect $200. I am not making light, so please do not take offence. The fact is, I have no idea why I believe this, I just do. And so do most Christians I know.
